Abstract: Andrew Pusbach

“As the language or vocabulary of photography has been extended, the emphasis of meaning has shifted, shifted from what the world looks like to what we feel about the world and what we want the world to mean.” –Aaron Siskind
One of the inherent qualities of abstract photography is how it allows the artist to view the world and its mundane objects in a unique and inventive way. It can be interpreted in countless ways, continually challenging the viewer to understand. Abstract art can be viewed from numerous angles and perspectives; in many cases, changing the orientation of the image also changes its interpretation. Aaron Siskind’s abstract photography has greatly inspired me to see the world in a new and creative way.

Link to Aaron Siskind's images and information:


  1. The texture and angle of this shot are good, but I would have liked to have more shadow for contrast and might want to see the image in a vibrant color version.

  2. This is a great image and fits the idea of abstract very well! It has a similar feel to one of Siskind's "Mediterranean Pictures" posted on the link. I think the black and white added similarity to Siskind. I also think there is plenty of contrast in the image as a black and white. Nice job!
